Nah. The minute you label spirituality it immediately loses truth. That's this man's opinion

"Excuse me miss. Let's F*CK!"

That was pretty spiritual. In my piggish opinion.

Hippycrits at there best.

The GD where anti establishment pro personal spirituality. Wake up to find that you are the eyes of the world ( you are god!)

Believe what you want.... if you do you won't find is necessary or practical to share that with others.

The GD itself where religious experience for many and as time when on became and "establishment". When the "X factor" kicked in and the room was "one" we where as close to "god" as anybody. That should be enough for anybody....

We can only be non conformist we don't conform with each other.


Agnostic is good since it translates roughly to "Question Authority" Always a good idea....
The catholic church, really..... You guys I have a bridge for sale in Brooklyn... paypal me $5 and it yours.

Puking blood sounds right....

Strictly speaking, I would say common usage (and how Huxley used it) is to the effect that one cannot know if God exists, so it is left aside.

Here's one defn:

"ag·nosti·cal·ly adv.
Word History: An agnostic does not deny the existence of God and heaven but holds that one cannot know for certain whether or not they exist. The term agnostic was fittingly coined by the 19th-century British scientist Thomas H. Huxley, who believed that only material phenomena were objects of exact knowledge. He made up the word from the prefix a-, meaning "without, not," as in amoral, and the noun Gnostic. Gnostic is related to the Greek word gnsis, "knowledge," which was used by early Christian writers to mean "higher, esoteric knowledge of spiritual things"; hence, Gnostic referred to those with such knowledge. In coining the term agnostic, Huxley was considering as "Gnostics" a group of his fellow intellectuals"ists," as he called themwho had eagerly embraced various doctrines or theories that explained the world to their satisfaction. Because he was a "man without a rag of a label to cover himself with," Huxley coined the term agnostic for himself, its first published use being in 1870."

I don't think that is specifically what that line means. It's a reference for consciousness not that we CREATED it. Also, how do you explaint he line in the Wheel then?

I don't disagree with most of the rest of what you said though. Live and let live and everyone finds their own way.

How about Ripple? That was not made by the hands of men followed by the concept of that path is for your steps alone

Yeah I have to be careful quoting songs....

Your definition may be closer to the intent. But like all great art people will take different things from it....some are far from the original intent.

While I'm not Catholic, despite have gone to Catholic school I just can't get into scapegoating and guilt, you must admit there's a ton of good stuff in there.

There's bound to be, since there were centuries for some brilliant people come through.
